(Newser) – The White House releases Barack Obama's "Certificate of Live Birth" and ... cut to Donald Trump. He immediately reacted to—and took credit for—the disclosure at a press conference in New Hampshire, where he said that "today I'm very proud of myself because I've accomplished something that nobody has been able to accomplish. I was just informed ... that our president has finally released a birth certificate." He continued patting himself on the back: "I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role, in hopefully, hopefully, getting rid of this issue. Now, we have to look at it, we have to see 'is it real? Is it proper?' But I hope it checks out beautifully." So will the Donald make good on his promise to release his tax returns?

The Photoshop community is in an uproar... over one of the most ineptly authored fraudulent documents ever passed off as genuine. Just type ( photoshop and "birth certificate") in Youtube and read in amazement.

Actually, Trump gets full credit. Is there anybody on earth who believes this would have suddenly and mysteriously gotten done without Trump blaring on and on about it? Trump is exactly right-- he deserves the credit.
